What do you know about the Templars? This half page-turner and half puzzle book contains all the history of the famous Knights up until today as well as 300 questions in 12 quizzes to test your knowledge. Enough is known about the Knights Templar to satisfy historians. Enough is mysterious about the Knights Templar to satisfy the dreamers. We think we know everything about the Knights Templar… but do we? Who were they? How did a group of 9 men manage to rise to such power and wealth in just under 20 years? Did they discover a treasure? Or more likely, some secret and ancient knowledge that could have toppled the Church. There is such a legend surrounding the Templars that it has become difficult to separate pure myths from history. This book will help you do just that. In 12 chapters, you will come and discover who these soldiers of Christ really were, why they were fighting, how they came to be so rich and powerful. We will explore together what it was to be a Templar, how they lived, where they lived, their castles, their legacy. And finally, we will discover what happened after they disappeared, what is their connection to Freemasonry and whether modern Templars walk among us. With 300 questions, this book will entertain you for hours and hours. Ever been asked to put together a team quiz at work? There is your little helper; these quizzes are already made for you.
